I thought the gung-ho guys who were controlling the tempo of the fans in the Eagles Nest did a fantastic job last night, just as they did last year. Their chants, noisemakers (horns and drums), and behavior is great and it helps give Tuttle North a real home-ice advantage, something that was lacking in the years past.
Those fans have also created a list of fan standards, and here they are...
We are all here to have fun be loud and be proud! Taunting is unsportsmanlike but is still part of the game. Refrain from cursing since there are children and families at the game. Refs, players, coaches and goalies are all fair game for this. Bring signs noisemakers and anything else that seems like it would fit.

Regular chants are done 4 times unless otherwise noted.
ALWAYS stand and applaud when an injured player for either team gets up and leaves the ice. Its respect.
Stand and Sing along with the National Anthem
Cheer when Brockport enters the ice, boo when the opponent enters.
Time Left Cheer. Starting when the clock hits 1:04 of every period, as the seconds count down, you chant "How Much Time Is Left?". The announcer at 1:00 says, "One minute left in the period." After, you say "Thank you"
Remote Control Goalie Cheer: if the goalie skates to the corner after a whistle we yell… "Skate.....skate....skate....tuuuuuurn!”
Chant repeatedly when an official misses a blatant call.
I'm blind. I'm deaf. I wanna be a ref!
Zebra, Zebra short and stout, find your head and pull it out!
Get off your knees ref, you’re blowing the game
Nuts and bolts, nuts and bolts, we got screwed!
Chant for opponents penalties:
As soon as the penalty is determined start yelling ahhhh. Once the penalty box door shuts, “See ya! Goon! You lose!”
When announcer says: “And (team name) returns to full strength” we yell “and (opponent’s name) still sucks!
For a situation where both teams have penalties ending at the same time:
Announcer: Penalties are over, both teams at full strength
Fans: THAT'S DEBATABLE
Fan 1: YOUR GIRLFRIEND'S INFLATABLE!
Fan 2: YOUR MOTHER'S STILL DATE-ABLE!
All: and YOU STILL SUCK
After a Brockport goal, they play the “Hey song” after hey we point at the goalie and say “you suck!” Once the music end we chant “sieve” 5 times, then “it’s all you’re fault” 4 times.
After a big save by our goalie:
Point to our goalie and yell "Goalie!" then point to theirs and yell "Sieve!" and repeat.
Inside 30 seconds with a 1 goal lead…Shake keys and chant “Warm up the bus”
AFTER THE GAME, win or lose…Stay until the team has completed their salute to the crowd
